The hostel is located to the east of the city centre in a quiet, typical Amsterdam neighbourhood. Amsterdam’s historic centre is less than 15 minutes away by bike or tram. Stayokay Amsterdam Oost has its own café-restaurant and shares the premises with a number of interesting neighbours, which means that there’s always plenty to do, if you stay here.
Amsterdam Oost is one of the most up and coming areas in Amsterdam, with an exciting mix of cultures you’re bound to find the vibrancy that you’re expecting from your trip. Full of excellent restaurants, cafes and bars nearby you’ll have even more options if you decide to head out beyond the hostel for food and drink. When planning your trip be sure to check what’s on in the park, as it often plays host to markets and events that you wouldn’t want to miss.
Very unpleasant hostel, very "factory", we do not find the human side that we can look for in a youth hostel. For an inn that cost as much as a hotel I should have chosen the hotel! We spent two nights in this inn, it is certainly very pretty but also very impersonal. During the two nights we were disturbed by a visibly alcoholic man who threatened us in the middle of the night and who played the music loudly. It is for this reason that I give a very poor rating for security, it is the first time that I am afraid of sleeping in a hostel.
The hostel is not very well placed either, very far from the city center on foot, you are obliged to take public transport, there is a tram stop 5 minutes walk but the tram itself is very expensive.
In short, very disappointed with this inn, absolutely 0 security, not warm, not human, it's a factory.
A very good hostel both for school trips, backpackers, trips for friends, families ... In fact, the entrance looks like a hotel. The lobby and cafeteria area are beautiful, renovated, youthful, very modern and clean.
The rooms are great, clean, with plenty of space even when they are full (we were in a room of 6 people / 3 bunk beds). They have private shower and bathroom, all perfect. The only bad thing that we take to the room is the fact that the lamp is somewhat dim (which is good for not disturbing your classmates when they sleep but bad for those and those who like to put on some makeup) . What we did was go down to the bathrooms in the lobby to put on makeup. The beds are quite comfortable to be a hostel that we pay at 160 euros for 7 nights and we have no other problems.
The location is 10 since there is a tram stop 1 minute (in front of the hostel a little further) where for the 14 that is the one that takes to go downtown. Getting around in Amsterdam is very easy.
The bad thing is that it has no kitchen, there is only a microwave in a room. Good thing, it can get you out of the way but it is not the same as a kitchen where you can cook pasta, do something grilled ... That the body asks after being 7 days eating out, hahahah. For those who eat late, the hostel gives food until 10 at night, so keep that in mind.
Comfortable and well-appointed inn Indoor snack bar open over a wide time range Close to several tram and bus stations
The hostel and our room were such as in the photos (the historic building of the exterior and modern interior with a large seating area on the ground floor and a huge canteen where buffet breakfast is served). The location is perfect with 1 tram and 1 bus nearby (not even 5 min walk) that make getting to the city center very easy. We had a great weekend!
Good place to sleep, not expensive. Well located Tram stop next door. The rooms are comfortable. However the reception staff is not very welcoming
Very comfortable room
Well located hostel
Welcoming and friendly staff
Restaurant ok (more vegetarian options for breakfast would be great. One of the dishes with eggs without salmon or bacon ...)
We were delighted with our stay, really very good value for money
Well located, near the tram stops. Happy people, nice people, good with life. Nice ambience, room in great condition, clean bed linen ... perfect
I liked to reach the GENRATOR inn in 20 minutes from the central station with the tram. In the evening after a day of sightseeing and exhibitions, it was nice to sit on a park bench just behind the hostel.
Hostel really top for a short stay: clean - modern - quiet Price of breakfast a bit too high
Super cafeteria, individual badges, very good reception, beautiful setting in a park, with metro and tram nearby, very comfortable beds, equipped bathroom and sufficiently large, furnished room with individual chests under the beds (only need a padlock ). In short, completely satisfied with my 3 nights
There is a tram stop at 50 m from the property and it offers links to different sites of the city. Rembrandtplein is 1.2 km away and Red Light District is within a short walking distance.
The hostel is 1.5 km from Amsterdam Central Station, 1.4 km from Dam Square and 2 km from Leidseplein.
Van Gogh Museum is 2.5km away.
Amsterdam City Centre is great for travellers interested in architecture, city trips and walking.
Lots of choices of bars,restaurants and nightlife/clubs all around our hostel.
The second MEININGER Hotel in Amsterdam is part of the city’s highest residential building and is situated directly opposite Amstel railway station. From here, it’s only a few minutes’ train ride into the city center. What’s more, the Amstel river runs through the neighborhood on its way to the sea.
Clean, new beds, nice smiley staff friendly funny. 30 beds announced in the room but we were not shy. Very inexpensive ... Very nice!
clean in central Amsterdam
Very nice stay at this hostel with my friends. The hostel is close to everything and the staff is friendly. As for the room (private) mattresses were a little hard but the room still met our expectations. I recommend
The hostel is uncomfortable I had one of the worst moments of my life with a bathroom that is less than one square meter.
The site does not comply at all with what the publication offers in your application. They have no lockers. The common places do not match the photos. And, in our particular case, we bought accommodation in a 6-bunk bedroom and ended up sleeping in one of 12 bunk beds with just one bathroom. In addition the bathroom in question without going into hygiene details, had the sector of pipes and wiring without protections and exposed. Not recommended at all. I suggest inspection.
I had a very pleasant stay, the hotel is great and the people at the reception are very available
Nice stay in this hostel. Clean room, good bedding and nice duvet.
Reassuring, friendly and very well located hostel (Intercity + metro 2min walk to Utrecht, Amsterdam Centraal and many others). The staff is very welcoming. The property looks a lot like a 4-star hotel, with several floors, large hallways and room access cards. There is a common kitchen room, a place to enjoy breakfast and / or snack and food vending machines. It is possible to choose the type of room: private (2 to 4 beds it seems to me with bathroom and toilet in the room) or dormitory (6 to 10 beds I think), reserved for women or men only or mixed. I was in a room for girls of 4 beds, with bathroom and toilet. Very clean, spacious, well attended, with secure personal lockers available under the bed, TV, hairdryer in the bathroom, night stand, personal electrical outlet, sheets and towels. Possibility to leave your suitcase in a secure locker all day on the first floor for 8 € if you do not feel confident with the people in your room. Only downside: the only washing machine and dryer in the common kitchen, not great. I recommend !
We had a very pleasant time at this hostel. Room very well equipped, there is nothing missing in the room And in addition they are super convenient. Cleanliness at the top. The very convenient location with 1min from the hostel: train station, metro, tram and bus. Bike rental on site. A shared kitchen. Very pretty hostel. Only two points to improve: the breakfast a bit too basic and the underground parking a bit too expensive. The reception and the staff available and very pleasant. If I have to go back to this place again, no doubt.
Thank you for your welcome, we had a very good stay.
If guests would like to explore the surroundings, they can visit Rembrandtplein and the Flower Market at 450 m away and Royal Palace Amsterdam at 750 m. Schiphol Airport is located at 15 km away.
The Nieuwmarkt and the Convent of Bethany are just around the corner and the hostel is located is at the border of the famous Red Light District.
Dam square is 5 minutes' walk and Central Station (train) is 10 minutes on foot.
The nearest airport is Schiphol Airport, 19 km
The rooms and facilities are very well appointed.
Satisfied with the stay, well located hostel, center and train station not far.
Well located but no atmosphere
Friendly hostel close to the red light but complicated access.
The hostel is great! The location is perfect, near the city center (Dam 5min walk) the central station is 10min, the only problem is that there is only one catch for 4 beds ... So take a multiple power;) But I recommend without moderation!
Ma sœur et moi avons passé un très bon moment à l'auberge de jeunesse Shelter City. En plein centre d'Amsterdam, elle nous a offert un séjour très agréable : personnel souriant et serviable, possibilité de jouer au ping-pong, au baby-foot, à la guitare, au piano... plus un accès à une terrasse calme et ensoleillée. Que demander de plus ? Je recommande vivement cette auberge, merci encore pour votre accueil !
Une auberge au top ! Tout est pratique ! Plein centre ville, dortoirs confortables avec casiers (prévoir cadenas mais sinon ils en vendent), petit déjeuner agréable servi jusque 10h30, petite cours intérieure avec des tables de jardin et des canapés confortables, sanitaires propres, et personnel très sympathique ! Bref, j'ai adoré et je recommande !
Well located, the breakfast service was a bit slow
The Hans Brinker Hostel is nestled between the iconic canals of Amsterdam; an easy 10 minute walk to the famous red-light district and a 5 minute walk to the entertainment area around Leidseplein and the iconic museums at Museumplein.
Our hostel is overlooking the Red Light District, in the heart of Amsterdam's nightlife hub.
I stayed 1 night in a 4 bed room.
The bed was clean and confortable. Shower and toilets were clean too. There is a lot of people to meet in this hostel and the bar downstairs is good. Well located.
I recomend this hostel!
A very good hostel, ideally located, within walking distance of the center, museums and places to go out. We had a room of 4 with bathroom, very clean. Breakfast is offered every morning, super nice! Do not hesitate !
The general very well, the bedrooms complete and clean, the breakfast good. The worst is the shower.
Room with strict minimum (iron bunk beds + tiny bathroom). Very noisy (bad insulation, doors slamming at all times). But all this justifies the low price, which is interesting for small budgets.
Room + breakfast included. Good service for the price. I recommend this hostel. Note that the coffee shops are located opposite the city, Central Station side (A 15min walk from the hostel). Have a nice trip :)
The location of the hostel and perfect and the staff is friendly
The bar and restaurant of the hostel are also very friendly
Very clean, quiet and the breakfast is very generous
Small negative point: there is no bathroom outside the room (to dry your hair without making noise it is complicated)
little tablets are missing near the beds to put your things at night
Good hostel. Cleanliness of the rooms very correct. The bar on the ground floor brings a big plus (good music and good food) A bit noisy but hey it's Amsterdam!
We had a really good time in this hostel!! The staff is really nice and helpful. Good location, near to the tramway and many good places to visit and to eat/drink. Go there!!
Very welcome and the staff has more than answered this in a difficult situation.
The presence of the bar on the ground floor makes this establishment very noisy.
